I had ankle-replacement surgery and an osteotomy (cutting and moving a foot bone to realign my gait) 9 weeks ago. I still feel half of the bottom of my foot is encased in thick wadding so I can't feel the floor. All the experts (surgeon, PT, primary care) can do is shrug and say "it takes time." I'm beginning to lose patience and hope. Anyone else experience this? At least the stabbing nerve pain and subsequent pins and needles have almost gone. I regret to say, I am getting somewhat depressed. I'm 74 and always been very active. Are my walking days over?
